Full description
After meeting your driver/ guide, take a scenic drive through the rural country roads surrounding Napier. Admire the stunning beauty of this region, with its orchards, market gardens and vineyards, as you learn more about Napier's history with an informative commentary. 

As you travel, hear about the early settlers of Napier and the devastation of the 1931 earthquake, with the help of reference photographs to take you back in time. After journeying through the countryside, you will reach Te Mata Peak to take in the breathtaking views, including the snow-capped Mount Ruapehu. Make the most of fantastic photo opportunities before exploring the nearby city of Hastings, famous for its art deco and Spanish mission-style architecture. 

On returning to Napier, you will see some of the many original art deco style buildings and drive through a magnificent art deco housing estate. To conclude the day, you will tour the main shopping center of Napier and, time permitting, have the chance to walk the main street with its great photo opportunities.
